Sunday Ponderings: Why Stop Yourself?

Hello everyone.....doin alright, I believe. The same here...except for a very irritating cold n headache which I pray I can get rid of somehow.

Last week, I asked you what you'd do if you knew that the world would end in 24 hours. There was a common thread in most of your answers, which was that you would tell your loved ones how much you loved them. Also, a few of you said that you'd have fun and have a glass of wine to celebrate the last day. 

Now, the question here is, why do we have to wait for the last day to tell our loved ones how much we love them, to have that glass of wine and enjoy ourselves and live rather than survive?

The question today is more of a rhetorical one, I guess...so I sign off with this: Cease to survive and start living. Live, love and laugh.

Sunday Ponderings: What Would You Do?

Hello everyone,

I hope everyone is having a good weekend, and is safe, in you little corner of the world. I have been doing good and have been kept busy with a few assignments that came up recently which explains my extended absence. I intend to revive the blog starting this week and I am making this announcement hoping that I would at least keep my word if I tell you guys about it....because I've tried telling myself that I'll do it over the last few weeks and have continued to conveniently postpone it since I am way too lazy. 

And now that the announcement is over, here's the question for this Sunday....what would you do if you knew that the World would come to an end tomorrow night. There, that gives you 24 hours I believe...so my question to you is what would you do in these 24 hours which leads to the end of the World...

My answer....well, I think this time I'm going to pass on the answer right now...doesn't mean that I will not answer the question...I asked it after all...but just that I won't answer it now...

Hurry up, tell me, what would you do?
Looking forward to your answers...

Toodles

Sunday Ponderings: Where Would You Stop?

Hello everyone....nope, I'm not back...nope, I don't know when I will be back...and yep, I know it's Monday already...!!! 


Okay, now that we've agreed on all that points, I will proceed. Things are crazy here, and sometimes it takes quite an effort to try and stay aloof, and also, more importantly positive. There's been a lot of travelling, a bit of arguing, a lot of laughs, a bit of frown too...but I think it'll all turn out right in the end and that thought helps me stay okay. 


Now, when all these things worry me, just to get away from all of it, I kind of get my brain to rewind to a different time period....hey, I'm not talking about flying cars and dinosaurs over here, just the times I've had more fun than worries...my favorite thoughts are always around the time I was in college...it is fun to think about all those fun things I've done with my friends, the laughs, the merrymaking and the carefree life of a teenager. And it's quite surprising for the reserved and cautious me in present to look at the daredevil, outgoing me in the past. And sometimes, I wish I stayed there for a bit longer, till everything just fixed itself. 


So my question for you, dear friends, is this: If you had a chance to rewind through your life and pause at one point...mind you, just one point, where would it be? 


As you've seen, I've already told you my answer...so what's left for me to do is to wait anxiously to read through your answers...


So, until then...


Ciao

Sunday....ermm...Monday Ponderings: What Makes You Like Her?

Hello everyone...

I know, I know....I'm late....but hey, I make the rules...so I can break them too, right? Right...so, moving on....Belated Mother's Day to all those wonderful Moms out there....and thank you....for everything because like the saying goes, "God couldn't be everywhere, so he created mothers".

Since it was Mother's Day, it's only fair to ask something related to Mothers...which is, what is the one thing that you and your mother have in common...the one thing that gets people to say "Like Mother, Like Daughter"... A particular habit, an interest of some sort, a hobby...something that binds you two together...

What about me? Well, I believe that I get my creative streaks from my Mom...she's someone who's creatively inclined...who paints, who sings and has a very aesthetic bent of mind...also, she made our house a home...a place to go back to when something worries you,a place that makes you feel like everything is going to be alright in the end.

So that's about me...what about you? Waiting to read your answers...

Until then, signing off...

Sunday Ponderings: Who'd You Be?

Hello friends...I am back, and I hope, this time for a longer time. It had been a difficult week for me, but things are better now. I faced the loss of someone I looked up to last Sunday, and am going through the recovery process. It wasn't a family member or a friend, but a spiritual Guru I followed. As I am not interested in sharing any further details, moving on...if you notice, this Sunday post has been moved to Monday, thanks to my unpredictable Internet connection...but then, what can I say, except for that I'm glad it's back!

Now, the question for today is something I borrowed from Prince Charming...which is this: Assuming that there's something called a re-birth, who or what would you want to be born as the next time, with the condition that you cannot choose to be yourself?  

My answer...I'd say I would want to be someone brave and strong, caring and understanding, someone with an unlimited reserve of patience and good thoughts to share with everyone...I think, next time, I'd like to be born as my maternal Grand Dad. I don't know why I came up with this answer...his image was the first thing that came up to my mind when I thought of an answer for this question... though I have never met him. Never known him either...but still, I chose him to be the person I want to re-born as...strange!

Well...let me not digress...I am waiting for your answer to this question...

Hoping to hear from you folks soon...
